Q.

We are trying to find an affordable Manningtree conveyancing quote. What do we need to consider?

A.

Various firms purport to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately extra fees are often hiding in the solicitor's terms which unwary homeowners fail to check. Any additional fees listed in terms and conditions should be reasonable. The disbursements to be paid should also be clearly stated on your quote. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.

Q.

Which of the Manningtree mortgage lender panels are you on?

A.

Of lenders with local branches nearby Manningtree, we with the majority. Local mortgage lenders and brokers include Trenter Bacon Ltd, Unit 3 The Maltings/The Quayside Maltings/High St, Mistley, Manningtree, CO11 1AL.

Q.

Should we select a law firm put forward by our estate agent?

A.

Agent referrals are a common path whereby buyers get a solicitor, however, these referrals should be compared against alternatives, as the agent may prefer to suggest whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the best solicitor for your needs.

Q.

We are anticipating to move from our terraced property near Manningtree into our new house in Maldon at what stage to instruct a house removal firm?

A.

The ideal approach is for buyers to delay booking a removal van until such time as you have firmed up a home moving date which happens once contracts have exchanged.

Local removals firms include Schofield R & D Ltd, Harwich Rd, Lawford, Manningtree, CO11 2LR Telephone: 01206 233376.

Q.

What kind of checks concerning the potential risk of possible flooding at Essex will the property lawyer in Manningtree be able to carry out?

A.

The conveyancing solicitor applies for standard protocol property conveyancing searches that should include Manningtree area flood risk information.

Q.

Northern Rock will be our mortgage lender - what will we need to know?

A.

Traditionally, most solicitors could act for the majority lenders. Buyers in Manningtree should be aware that some lenders have opted to reduce the size of their 'solicitor panel'. This can mean increased legal costs for home buyers. Homeward Legal can act on behalf of most CML-approved lenders so that you will not be required to pay an additional fee for your lender's solicitor.

Q.

How do I check whether the conservation area is in a poor state?

A.

Conservation areas are designated by the local Tendring planning authority, who administer everything from including things like street guard rails, rear extensions and public spaces. English Heritage, a government body, have assembled a list about the state of conservation areas as well as the vulnerability of the area.

Q.

I am intending to buy in Manningtree. How can we establish whether the house is in a designated conservation area?

A.

Locales deemed to be of architectural or historic interest, such as 18th century suburbs, will be recorded as conservation areas. The conveyancing lawyer handling your purchase should be able to provide more details and discuss what specific restrictions are in place.
